A bookie’s dream

Three Kings 5, Glenfield Rovers 1 Keith Hay Park, Auckland, May 8 2016 Before this game, there were still three teams I hadn’t yet blogged about so far this NRFL Women’s Premier League season. Those three sides were Glenfield, Norwest and Western Springs. I had been planning to go to […]

Comparing apples with oranges…

Eastern Suburbs 5, Three Kings United 0 Madills Farm, Auckland, May 12 2013 I’ve been a slack-arse lately. I didn’t cover any local football last weekend and I haven’t done a women’s game for over a month, therefore yesterday it was time for a little catch-up. So yesterday I developed […]
